    Your corporate client is worried: "The government is investigating us. What should we do?" Or you get a panicked call from an employee: "My company is doing an internal investigation. What's going to happen to me?" Whether you're in-house counsel, a transactional attorney, outside litigation counsel, or the attorney for the employee, these kinds of investigations pose unique concerns. Who is my client? Will the DOJ keep this confidential? How can I be assured my notes are privileged? An All Star panel will explain. Join us for fun, food, networking, and learning.
